    Would love to see the orchid you got. Is the show always over Halloween and where is it?
    We vacation in Glouchester every October. Next year we will be there Oct. 17th -24. Wish they would have the show then. Bill

    It took place in Boylston, MA at the Tower Hill Botanic Gardens. Im not sure if this takes place during Halloween every year but. This would be the first time I attend such a show. You could always get more info from the Mass. OS website. I cant wait for the next show...RI OS show is in Nov., Jan. is the Cape OS show, and Feb. is the NH OS show.....but anyhow..I'll have to go to the botanic garden during the summer. Its deff. a nice place to check out if your in the area.

    I'm fascinated by the C. dormaniana 'Dark Chocolate.' I wanted to go to this show, but couldn't get a ride at a time that fit other stuff I needed to do--like be home when the kiddies come for candy.

    Thanks for posting the pictures.

    Great pics, Andrew. I particularly like C Caudebac and Wils. Aloha Sparks. Wonder if Aloha Sparks is warm-tolerant?

    Oh man....that stinks...well there are a couple other shows coming up around this area soon...Hopefully you can get to one...
    Oh and the C. dormaniana was great but it had a shaggy lip...I dont know if thats the shape or if the blooms were coming to an end soon....

    Thanks catttan. I also liked the C. caudebac very much. Great looking flower. Hmmm im not sure about the Wils. being warm growing but I kinda heard that the Bllra. Marfinch that was gifted to me would be warm tolerant.

    Well Im glad everyone enjoyed my pictures.....as much as I enjoyed the show....Mmmmmm I'll deff be at the next show..lol......
